10/06/2012 - College PREP - Salt Lake, UT Samantha is a strong RHP with good arm speed. She features a wide stance with a full arm swing and a slow delivery. She stays on line and keeps her shoulders level as she lands with balance but is slightly upright at the end. Would like to see her focus on completing that delivery with an explosive, complete finish. She can change speeds and has some nasty movement on her drop, rise and screw but needs to improve fastball command to more effectively pitch to contact. At the plate, Samantha uses a square set up with a back load, short stride and keeps her weight on her heels before launching to the ball. Long at times, her swing produces contact to the whole field but its quality will improve as she incorporates her lower half more aggressively and continues to improve her focus when tracking the ball to contact. Samantha has very strong wrists that she uses to generate bat speed and will experience even more bat speed if she stays back and hits with her hips behind the ball. Overall, Samantha has some real potential to help someone on the mound and needs to continue to compete at the highest level possible to further develop.
